Home Sweet Home: Fireworks, fireworks!

070313 Blog Fireworks

Twelve games deep into the second half of the Texas League season, and the Frisco RoughRiders sit tied atop the South Division standings. The upcoming six-game home stand, which begins tonight, will complete a stretch of 12 straight games against North Division opponents.

This is an important home stand for Frisco, as they are eight games over .500 against the North Division this season and need to capitalize on these meetings against North Division foes. The games line up the same as they did the last six games: three against the Travelers and then three against the Naturals. Frisco went 3-3 in that stretch, taking one from the Travs and two from the Naturals; both teams are 7-5, the best mark in the second half in the Texas League.

These are the matchups we expect to see on the mound for the upcoming two series:

Wednesday: RHP Nick McBride (1-3, 5.14 ERA) vs RHP Matt Oye (5-5, 5.29 ERA)

Thursday: RHP Kevin Pucetas (8-7, 4.80 ERA) vs RHP Brandon Hynick (6-3, 2.88 ERA)

Friday: RHP Neil Ramirez (9-2, 3.14 ERA) vs RHP Mike Piazza (4-2, 3.24 ERA)

Saturday: RHP Carlos Pimentel (7-6, 4.55 ERA) vs TBA

Sunday: RHP Tyler Tufts (2-2, 3.24 ERA) vs TBA

Baseball term of the day: seat-boomerslang term for a home run

(term from The Dickson Baseball Dictionary)

Home Sweet Home: First-half stretch run

061213 Stadium

The Frisco RoughRiders return to Dr Pepper Ballpark tonight for the longest home stand of the year. In many ways, however, it is two home stands, as the first six games will end the first half, while the second set of six contests begins half number two.

With six games to play before crowning a first half champion from both division, the RoughRiders are only two game back of first place in the Texas League South Division. They trail Corpus Christi, their opponent for the next four days and for eight of the twelve games this home stand.

It is certainly possible that these two teams tie (gasp!) at the conclusion of the first half, and in that case, it is important to know how that tiebreaker will go:

Sec 22, c, i. In the event of a percentage tie in the first half season, the championship of that season will be broken by the outcome of the first scheduled game played between the two teams in the second half, with that game also being counted in the second half standings.

That means that a week from tomorrow, Thursday, June 20 would be a winner-take-all game of the first half title.

The Astros affiliate, led by the MiLB home run leader George Springer, bring three All-Star pitchers to Frisco in Jake Buchanan, David Martinez and Michael Foltynewicz, two who will start, and one (Foltynewicz) we should expect to see in relief of Martinez on Saturday.

Tonight will be the first chance for DFW area fans to see the RoughRiders after their seven all-star selections were announced yesterday.

Here is how the first six games of the home stand line up as far as the pitching matchups go:

Wednesday: RHP Nick McBride (0-2, 11.70) vs. RHP Jake Buchanan (7-0, 0.80)

Thursday: RHP Carlos Pimentel (7-2, 2.96) vs. RHP Nick Tropeano (1-4, 3.71)

Friday: RHP Tyler Tufts (1-1, 3.79) vs. RHP Ruben Alaniz (2-6, 6.22)

Saturday: RHP Neil Ramirez (7-2, 3.39) vs. RHP David Martinez

Sunday: RHP Kevin Pucetas vs. RHP Sean Murphy (3-2, 4.88 ERA)

Monday: TBA (But if rotations stay the same should be:

RHP Nick McBride (0-2, 11.70) vs. Carlos Hernandez (2-5, 3.59 ERA)

Baseball term of the day: fandango - a strikeout

Home Sweet Home: Day baseball aplenty and the return of Richard Bleier

The Frisco RoughRiders return home in second place in the Texas League, trailing only their opponent from this past weekend, the Corpus Christi Hooks. The ‘Riders split the four-game series with the Astros affiliate.

Today, they begin a four-game series with the Midland RockHounds, the Double-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics. This is the first trip of the season for the RockHounds to Dr Pepper Ballpark; the two teams got acquainted last week when Frisco dropped three of four games at Citibank Ballpark in Midland.

The RoughRiders announced today that Richard Bleier has been added to the roster, received from Triple-A Round Rock, where he began the season. Bleier threw for the RoughRiders in each of the last three seasons. We will have more on him later in the week; he is projected to start on Thursday.

This is how the pitching matchups line up:

Monday: Tyler Tufts vs. Zach Neal

Tuesday: Neil Ramirez vs. Arnold Leon

Wednesday: Kevin Pucetas vs. Sean Murphy

Thursday: Richard Bleier vs. TBA
